A warm welcome to Amanda Oduka who joined the Atlantic Institute in late March as Impact Fund Lead. She will design and deliver an exceptional, non-precedent setting fund for Atlantic Fellows’ collaborative projects, with responsibilities including the design of the fund’s objectives, and application and review processes.

Amanda has significant experience in the international development sector, having worked in program and grant management, MEAL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability, Learning) and fundraising. She has held previous positions at Engineers Against Poverty/CoST Infrastructure Transparency Standard, Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and KwaAfrica an African diaspora led organisation.  

Having already completed a degree in international development: NGO management, Amanda is now pursuing a part-time Master’s in Business Administration at the Cass Business School , University of London, with a focus on entrepreneurship.

She says:" As a Black African woman, I am aware of the disparities in equity shared by many of the Fellows in the wider Atlantic family, which is why I wanted to join the Atlantic Institute to make a difference. I am passionate about creativity, innovation, co-creation and collaboration, and intrinsically believe in the greater ideals of service and transcendence."
